asoughtafterdroid: What a sad image. A man getting shot while enjoying the briefest reprieves of a meal. All war is vile.
Dittybopper: I realise the guy is a soldier, and therefore a legitimate target for his countries enemies. Still, to my mind, it takes a mean hearted SOB to kill a man sitting down enjoying a meal.
Mercury___Rising: Really drives home the waste and needlessness of war
curlingzamboni: Very emotional picture. The colouring adds more depth.
sino66: Gosh millions of french solidaires died in first war! It was a massacre! Jofre let his solidiers died as a shield to tire the Germans.
boot20: World War I was insane. We had developed amazingly efficient war tools, but were still using the same combat techniques we were using for hundreds of years. Hell, the French were even wearing breastplates and other armor at the beginning of the war.
What’s even crazier, is that airplanes completely changed warfare, but it wasn’t fully utilized until WWII.
sixcharlie: Steel helmets were not widely adopted by any Army until the summer of 1916.
curlingzamboni: “The true Last Supper” keeps popping into my mind.
